Please see below the following call for paper for a conference at Université de Lorraine (Metz, France), next fall (9-10 November 2017).
This conference is related to the commemoration by the Département de Moselle of the centenary of Jack Kirby's birth and the remembrance of his battles in this part of France in 1944. This conference intends to take the example of this famous comics creator as a starting point for a more general discussion on the conditions and forms of the expression of autobiographical experiences within the constrained contexts of genre comics.
Proposals on Jack Kirby and/or war experiences are welcome. Yet the thematic scope of the conference is open to all editorial and aesthetic traditions, to all periods.
